Telugu Titans pile up the pressure on Pink Panthers
Jaipur Pink Panthers, who are the reigning champions of the Pro Kabaddi League are yet to get a win this season. The loss against Telugu further messed up their run.
Jaipur started off the match on a strong note with a 3-0 lead and looked set to win their first game of the season. However, Titans took the lead back soon and led 8-7 at the end of the first half.
Rahul Chaudhari then produced a magical performance for Telugu Titans in the second half when he inflicted an all-out on the Pink Panthers. The raid earned him four points and it expanded the lead of the Titans. A Lead that the Jaipur team could not cover through the rest of the match.
For Jaipur, Rajesh Narwal tried kicking off a counter attack but his impressive raids went in vain as Rahul Chaudhari and Sukesh Hedge helped Titans win the match with some impressive raids. Panthers will now lock horns with Bengaluru Bulls in the next match while Telugu Titans have a date with Patna Pirates. This was the fourth straight loss for the Jaipur Pink Panthers and they will have to come up with a miraculous turn-around if they are to have any chance of retaining their title.
